The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help in solving the 2011 homicide of Leonard "LJ" Irving.

This investigation began on Sunday June 26, 2011 at 12:37 a.m., when North Precinct officers responded to reports of a shooting at Northeast 82nd Avenue and Thompson Street.

Officers arriving in the area located 34-year-old Leonard James "LJ" Irving deceased as a result of a gunshot wound. Officers located a second man, Lamar Lovette Hill, suffering from a gunshot wound to the neck. A third man, Jeray Lashawn Jessie, walked into an area hospital sometime later with a gunshot wound to the forearm. Both Hill and Jessie were 21 years old at the time of the shooting.

Detectives determined that there was some sort of disturbance, resulting in gunfire that injured the two men and killed Mr. Irving, a father of three young children.

Crime Stoppers of Oregon offers cash rewards of up to $2,500 cash for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in any unsolved felony crime and tipsters can remain anonymous.
